Seen 1 to many complaints about JKO being dead.

Wrong.

There are many reasons why it can and will stay alive for a long time.
If it's dying why is JKII the most popular Lucasforum out there?

The fact that it's forum has the largest post count and the matter of the game itself being, "dead" aren't really related at all.

I think its cause of the Swamp we have such a large post count...but anyways I dont think JKII is dead yet, and I still enjoy it. Thats all that matters to me. :D

True, but I consider the forums a leading indicator of the popularity of the game.

Heck, with this new saber collision system I'm working on, the game is fresh again. Check out the showcase forum soon for details.

Many forum goers don't play the game anymore. You're comparing apples to oranges ;)

I know most swampies don't play much but there are plenty who still do and even more over here in the valley.

I meet newb uh...... sorry new players all the time.

And with guys like razorace working on new goodies it can stay very fresh.

Finally! A thread dedicated to the fact it's not dead!:D Yay!

I said this on FatalStrike's thread, but we mappers, movie makers, modellers, skinners, effect makers, coders, and any editors I left out still cause it to grow. There are many new treats coming out soon. Forcemod 2, Party Crasher, Dark Forces, and many others.

Our pessimists who say its dead can kill it by making others think it is dead and stop playing it. That kills a game.

A game is dead when nobody plays it and nobody talks about it.

I'm not going to stop playing this game for a long time. There are plenty of threads without Yoda's Swamp, but Yoda's Swamp has several threads with over one thousand replies including the Father Torque Foundation, which of course going to have more posts than almost any other thread. The Valley of the Jedi and General Editing both have more threads than the Swamp.

Come on RPG saber newbies stop pontificating on the longevity of this game and fretting over long since released patches.

The game is out, play it.
Play it here too if you are any good.

400 of those servers are empty ;)

This is not all Lucas Arts' fault...it's also admins who decide to make all these crappy mods, put it on the server, then turn auto download off. Also, admins who fill their servers full of bots. I'm tired of seeing the only server with people on it ending up being 100% bots.

Really, the ONLY good mod (game mod, not admin mods) was ProMod....all the others were crap. Een that jedi++ mod...it made the red saber freeze if you swung the saber. Swing...freeze for 2 seconds....then finish swing. It just looked so dumb.

I'm more than willing to play with people though. I still enjoy sabering. I did earn the title Master Saberist in a tournament, after all ;)


BTW, although I'm now in charge of the Counter-Strike Division, we still do have a JK2 Division...but it's still growing. I'd appreciate some help by someone letting my clan use their jk2 dedicated server for an "official" clan server. (Only two people would need admin, myself and our JK2 Division's General). Would appreciate Jedi Master difficulty. Any takers?

Thanks Griff. It's about time this thing was posted. As stated before, this game isn't dead. I hate all the threads that says that it is. Just leave and go onto another game. I for one don't want to hear people complaining. Let the people that enjoy JO keep it alive. And don't scare other people away. Let them make their own decision whether or not they like to play this game. I was playing a few days ago and this person kept on saying that JO was dead. I found it ironic since he was playing. Oh, and I know this might be a little off topic but I'll try to connect it:

//This is my take... Don't be scared if you are starting to play this game... Read my Bold Statement at the bottom.

I think the complaints are the reason why this game has gone downhill. On the forums and in the games. Since I already talked about the forums, I'll talk about in game situations.

One is hacking. I hear people tossing this accusation around so much its unbelieveable. I for one have been accused of hacking many times. Second is players complaining about how you killed them. Again, I have made many enemies that can't handle that they were killed by a saber or just killed...

Lets get this straight... I started playing this game when it first came out and still play it for enjoyment. And two, I don't hack and don't use binds (which I find worthless).

For those who usually complain, here is my message to you. Accept the fact that some people are better than you... I did along time ago and even today... But, with that said, learn from them. Ask them questions or just watch. You can learn a lot that way. Oh yes, practice with real people when you can because no bot can simulate a human. Hope to see you out there on the servers :)

well.. i don't have a good view on how alive or how dead the game is.. I'm sure there are many reasons for the game still being alive.

But I just don't think the amount of posts on this lucasforum is a good reference to how alive or how dead the game is.. Mainly because a lot of the posts are complaint posts and posts about other issues besided the game (swampy).
So i guess there are tons of good reasons of why the game may still be alive.. i just don't think the amount of posts on this board belongs in that category.

1. If it was dead, there wouldn't be so many people still playing it and posting here and so very many people editing it.

2. There is more to JO than just multiplayer.

What Emon said..

I've never played JO online once... ever... I'm only interested in the SP.

In regard to MP, JO may be dead. Where SP is concerned, it hasn't even started living yet.

I can't be....can it?

I mean what would I do ..... where would I go?!

IT's NOT DEAD DANGIT! I CAN'T BE!!! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!


People it's over. Time of death - 1.03

Foetal's still here huh.

Look, if you don't want to play a game you think is dead, fine. Go away and pretend you're in Normandy or whatever it is you do. Honestly, you just can't get the help these days... :rolleyes:

I'm glad this game is not dead! I love it like a brother!

All I used to play was MP, but that got a little boring, so I tried the campaign missions. I'm a changed man! :cool:


As for those who think the game is dead, they can talk all they want, but in the end this game will survive! I feel like singing! :D

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recently the team ladders for Jedi Outcast have become extremely small. Because of this we are going to be closing them down. The 1v1 ladders will stay open and we will also probably be getting rid of the two forum system.

For all those who are still active in the affected ladders we apologize.

I'm sure there are less people playing this game than before, but I always thought that the competative players that play in ladders and tournaments were hard core gamers. Don't hard core gamers always play the newest games? This game has been out almost a year. Of course there are going to be less players.

But less players does not equal dead. Frankly, I think this is when the game is at it's best. The novelty has worn off, so those players that hop from game to game are gone. Those that truly enjoy this game are all that remain (except FatalStrike, who seems to be trying to convince people not to play for some reason). I'm having more fun now than ever, especially with all the great SP maps coming out.

Really, JO is dead for those who want it to be, and very alive for those that want to play.

Fatalstrike was a total Promod groupie. Once Promod was discontinued, he lost interest in the game.

That would explain his thread and his post on this thread. Oh well, let's avoid flames or it wil be closed like his thread was PLEASE.

It's not dead. Hey, maybe someday they will release the SP source code and we can have lots more fun coding SP. That will keep it alive for a lot longer than any of the downers think.

Who need's those who think the game's dead. If you think it's dead, don't post here. Go to Yoda's swamp. Maybe you'll drown or get eaten the thing that almost ate r2-d2 and we won't have to listen to your negative comments. Just stop clogging the valley of the jedi with your comments of death or get a dead game forum. Then, you won't scare people from JK2.

razorace
03-23-2003, 10:07 PM
I agree. Negative comments only scare people off.

Kurgan
03-24-2003, 02:12 AM
We'd be kidding ourselves if we said these forums make up the majority of the JK2 community. Heck, we're just a tiny percentage....

Don't forget that. ; )


As for me I'm playing now more than ever. The game will only die if you let it.
